Die Beiträge spiegeln die universelle Bedeutung der jüdisch-diasporischen Geschichtserfahrung in der Moderne. Mit neuen Perspektiven zur Ideen- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte, zu Politik, Literatur und Migration entwerfen sie ein vielfältiges Bild einer integrierten jüdischen Geschichtsschreibung. Die Autorinnen und Autoren nutzen dabei interdisziplinäre und transnationale Zugänge und betten die Geschichte der Judenheiten in den historischen Kontext ihrer Mehrheitsgesellschaften ein. Der Band liefert so neue Forschungsergebnisse, die Erkenntnisse für die jüdischen Studien ebenso wie die allgemeine Geschichte Europas, Amerikas und des Nahen Ostens bereithalten.

Aus den böhmischen Ländern ins skandinavische Volksheim

Zwischen Flucht und Arbeitsmigration: sudetendeutsche Flüchtlinge in Schweden. Nach dem Münchner Abkommen 1938 fanden viele verfolgte sudetendeutsche Sozialdemokraten und Kommunisten Zuflucht in Skandinavien, insbesondere in Schweden. Mit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs und der Vertreibung der Deutschen aus der Tschechoslowakei verloren nicht nur die meisten der Flüchtlinge ihre Option auf Rückkehr. Bis Mitte der 1950er Jahre folgten ihnen nun weitere sudetendeutsche Immigranten. Rudolf Tempsch zeigt am Beispiel der insgesamt etwa 5.000 nach Schweden geflohenen Sudetendeutschen zum einen, wie politische Flüchtlinge während des Kriegs empfangen wurden und wie sie sich an die schwedische Gesellschaft anpassten, zum anderen aber auch, wie nach dem Krieg die ersten Arbeitsmigranten angeworben und aufgenommen wurden. Die Aufnahme der Sudetendeutschen in Schweden stellt ein besonders erfolgreiches Beispiel für die Integration von Migranten in die Gesellschaft des skandinavischen Landes dar, das von den regierenden Sozialdemokraten in diesen Jahren im Sinne ihres Ideals eines wohlfahrtsstaatlichen "Volksheims" gestaltet wurde.

The Morgenthau Plan

Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy

The Morgenthau Plan, the Allies' post-war policy that preceded the Marshall Plan, devastated what remained of Germany after the war was officially over. Was this economic idiocy OCo or intentional destruction of a surrendered country? The current work documents how the Morgenthau Plan was designed to completely destroy the German economy, enslave millions of her citizens, and exterminate as many as 20 million people. John Dietrich demonstrates this through countless documented quotes from official sources. What had changed by 1947, and why was the Morgenthau Plan finally rejected, swept under the carpet, and radically reversed? Where are today's professional historians and why is this stunning episode in US postwar policy minimized or ignored?"

Our endangered values

America's moral crisis

President Carter has written importantly about his spiritual life and faith. In this book, he offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred. He reacts to some trends involving both the religious and the political worlds as they have increasingly become intertwined, and including some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day--frequently encapsulated under "moral values." They include preemptive war, women's rights, terrorism, civil liberties, homosexuality, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, America's global image, fundamentalism, and the melding of religion and politics. Sustained by his faith, Carter assesses these issues in a forceful and unequivocal but balanced and courageous way.--From publisher description.

The Liberation of the Camps

The End of the Holocaust and Its Aftermath

Seventy years have passed since the tortured inmates of Hitler’s concentration and extermination camps were liberated. When the horror of the atrocities came fully to light, it was easy for others to imagine the joyful relief of freed prisoners. Yet for those who had survived the unimaginable, the experience of liberation was a slow, grueling journey back to life. In this unprecedented inquiry into the days, months, and years following the arrival of Allied forces at the Nazi camps, a foremost historian of the Holocaust draws on archival sources and especially on eyewitness testimonies to reveal the complex challenges liberated victims faced and the daunting tasks their liberators undertook to help them reclaim their shattered lives. Historian Dan Stone focuses on the survivors—their feelings of guilt, exhaustion, fear, shame for having survived, and devastating grief for lost family members; their immense medical problems; and their later demands to be released from Displaced Persons camps and resettled in countries of their own choosing. Stone also tracks the efforts of British, American, Canadian, and Russian liberators as they contended with survivors’ immediate needs, then grappled with longer-term issues that shaped the postwar world and ushered in the first chill of the Cold War years ahead.

Southern Writers

A New Biographical Dictionary

This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century. What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned. Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.

Wie Demokratien sterben

Und was wir dagegen tun können

Ausgezeichnet mit dem NDR Kultur Sachbuchpreis 2018 als bestes Sachbuch des Jahres Demokratien sterben mit einem Knall oder mit einem Wimmern. Der Knall, also das oft gewaltsame Ende einer Demokratie durch einen Putsch, einen Krieg oder eine Revolution, ist spektakulärer. Doch das Dahinsiechen einer Demokratie, das Sterben mit einem Wimmern, ist alltäglicher – und gefährlicher, weil die Bürger meist erst aufwachen, wenn es zu spät ist. Mit Blick auf die USA, Lateinamerika und Europa zeigen die beiden Politologen Steven Levitsky und Daniel Ziblatt, woran wir erkennen, dass demokratische Institutionen und Prozesse ausgehöhlt werden. Und sie sagen, an welchen Punkten wir eingreifen können, um diese Entwicklung zu stoppen. Denn mit gezielter Gegenwehr lässt sich die Demokratie retten – auch vom Sterbebett.
